Children's Advocacy Day
Have you heard the great news? Have you signed up yet? On February 16th, the Child Care Council and Kids Matter are excited to send people to Frankfort for Children's Advocacy Day.
This is the 8th annual event and it is exciting to see so many parents, teachers, concerned citizens and kids at the Capital. In the past, we have had representation from 50 different counties. We begin the day with a Rally for Children, which runs from 10:00am - 11:00am in the Capital Rotunda. After that, we disperse and visit legislators and bring the issues of Ky's youth to the forefront.
If you would like to attend Children's Advocacy Day, you can register here. This helps us keep an accurate count of the people attending and the counties being represented.
If you would like to meet with a legislator while in Frankfort, you will need to schedule an appointment. Not sure who your legislator is? Check out the Legislative Research Commission and then you can schedule an appointment by calling 502-564-8100.
We hope to see you in Frankfort on February 16th. The evening is capped off by a Legislative Reception from 5:30pm - 7:30pm.
Join us and let the state know that you think Kids Matter!
